While working on the "reproducible builds" effort [1], we have noticed
that passwordsafe could not be built reproducibly.
It embeds information from the build process into extra fields of help
zip files and writes C++ files in a locale-dependent way.

The attached patch fixes that by preventing extra fields be stored in
zip files and by using the default Perl-behavior for sorting keys.
